Overview

A reader-friendly guide to Hormone Replacement Therapy and the first book to feature SERMs, the new estrogen substitutes....Now women can enjoy the many benefits of estrogen--without all the worry.

"A new alternative to estrogen may offer older women many of the hormone's heart-and-bone-protecting advantages without one of its most worrisome side effects--the increased risk of breast cancer." --Associated Press

Every postmenopausal woman must face the estrogen dilemma. Replacing estrogen lowers the incidence of heart disease, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's disease--but it also increases the chance of breast and uterine cancer. Until now...New synthetic hormones, SERMs, provide many of the benefits of estrogen without the risks. Written by Steven R. Goldstein, M.D., a world-renowned obstetrician and gynecologist, and Laurie Ashner, a prominent journalist and therapist, The Estrogen Alternative is the first book to reveal the latest advances in the field. This essential and accessible guide--updated with new material for the paperback edition--answers important questions about traditional estrogen therapy, herbal estrogen therapy and SERMs, as well as which form of hormone replacement therapy is best for one's individual needs.

* Includes new, updated material, featuring the latest advances in the field

* The estrogen dilemma is one of the most important concerns for postmenopausal women

* Author Steven Goldstein, M.D., was on the advisory committee to the team that developed Raloxifene, and has lectured to one out of three OB/GYNs in the U.S.
